Half N Half Marathon

December 9th, 2018

Turkey Mountain, Tulsa, Oklahoma

The RunnersWorld Tulsa Half and Half Marathon allows you to run a half marathon on the Turkey Mountain trails or a half marathon on paved pedestrian trails. All races will be going at the same time for some fast-paced finish line action.

  • Half Marathon on Turkey Mountain Dirt Trails
  • Half Marathon on Riverside Paved Trails
  • Full Marathon with First Half on Trails and Second Half on Paved Trails
  • Full Marathon Entirely on Riverside Paved Pedestrian Trails

Every finisher receives a unique medal for each half completed. These medals connect together to form a Taijitu - the symbol for Yin Yang. Together the medals represent a balance between running on trails and pavement. Read more about Yin Yang here.

There are lots of other reasons to love this unique race:

  • Incredibly Awesome Tech Shirts for all entrants if you register in time!
  • Fully Stocked, World Famous Aid Stations!
  • Ample Nine Hour Time Limit!
  • Great food Provided After the Race!
  • Awards for the Top 3 Male and Female for Each Event!

Project Elf Toy Drive

Bring a new unwrapped toy for the kids that will go to Project Elf. Project Elf is a volunteer-based, non-profit organization that works wonders for Tulsa schoolchildren in need of the basics most of us take for granted, such as clothes, shoes, school supplies, and personal hygiene products. All gifts will be collected at the race and given to Project Elf who will distribute the toys to children in need.

Course Description

The races start and finish at the Turkey Mountain main (lower) parking lot located at 6800 S. Elwood Ave. The Trail Half Marathon is an out and back course with a turn around at the Westide YMCA. The Paved Half Marathon is entirely on the Riverparks paved trail system. There is a nine hour time limit for all races. All courses will be marked with pink ribbons and signs.
